Lucille Hegamin was one of the very first black blues singers to record. "Everybody's Blues" is from her first record, made in November 1920 for the small independent Arto/Bell label. Her recording career lasted into the early 1930s.
She is backed on this record by Harris' Blues and Jazz Seven. From the original 78 rpm disk (Bell P-45).

Particularly when the voice is as beautiful as Lucille Hegamin's. And the beauty did not stop with her voice, she was a knockout and one of the pioneering voices of the blues. For more on this great singer go here:
